All-Levels Wheel-Throwing with Sam Deering

$300 Purchase required to enroll

Using the potter’s wheel, students will learn how to throw clay into a variety of shapes and sizes. Every class will start with a brief demonstration of clay preparation, basic throwing skills, and some examples of how to push things a little further for those who are ready and those who want to try. We will then move to trimming and finishing our pieces, and finally glazing. Wheel-throwing is a challenging yet meditative way to work with clay, and whether you're new to the wheel, or an experienced thrower, we’ll improve your skills and ability to really finish a piece for firing. (Once a week; 8 sessions)

Experience Level: Beginning through Advanced.

What’s Included:

  • Laguna Stoneware clay (up to 25 lbs), Glaze Materials, both Bisque and Glaze Firings (cone 6).

  • The opportunity to glaze-fire twice, including mid-way through the class and the final week.

  • Students are encouraged to purchase their own basic Kemper Pottery Tool Kit (https://www.baileypottery.com/c-090-002.html), though primary tools will be available on loan during class sessions.
